Tim Cahill completed his move from Everton to Major League Soccer Side New York Red Bulls and quickly thanked the support he had received at Goodison Park over the years.
His departure may well have been expected, but that didn't make the announcement any easier to take for Evertonians the world over.
During eight years on Merseyside, the Australian had become a huge favourite amongst the fans, his commitment and endeavour was never questioned and in leaving the club and obviously looking forward to an exciting new adventure in America, he still had time to say an emotional goodbye to us fans.
"I want to thank everyone at Everton, from the club to tremendous supporters.
'It has been a privilege to be an Everton player for the past eight years and it was a very difficult decision to leave.
'I will always support Everton and I wish the club the best of luck in the future. he told the media.
The 32-year-old passed a medical yesterday and immediately joined his new team-mates for training, once the £1million move was officially completed.
Absolutely gutted, i know he hasnt been his usual best but its going to break my heart not see him in Royal Blue. Thanks for the memories Tim, your a Everton Legend ToffeeBlue
It is funny, I knew Timmy leaving was going to happen soon, but now it is official, I am still shocked that I won't see Timmy in a blue shirt anymore. For me, he is an Everton legend, he is the embodiment of this club and he has given us 8 great years with plenty of memories. But it was the right time to leave, for Timmy and the club.
Good luck Timmy and Thankyou. Rob-EFC
Really gutted to see him go, at least moving to America has to be better for him than Saudi Arabia and China where he had been linked to previously!
We all knew it was coming but it was still sad to read that it was all official now.
Still £1million is a good deal and some extra cash for Moyes to throw at Spurs to bring Pienaar home. Yak
Makes financial sense.
We're very reliant on Rodwell stepping up now though so that we can use Fellaini there.
At some point we're going to have to start bringing in free's/loans else be entirely reliant on youth players, surely huge gap in the wage budget now to allow it. EvertonMike
